Prysm Makes a Splash at New York Digital Signage Week

Two weeks ago, Prysm participated in New York Digital Signage Week (NYDSW), hosting a variety of events – from press Q&As to a customer and partner open house – at our New York City CEC, located in the heart of bustling Manhattan. Throughout the week, we showcased how the Laser Phosphor Display (LPD) 6K Series is helping digital signage customers provide a unique and personalized experience for consumers.

I have been friends with Mark Thompson, the #1 growth leadership coach, and his wife, career strategist Bonita Thompson for years, and ever since they saw the Prysm Laser Phosphor Display (LPD) 6K Series at our launch party in New York City, they have been eager to give the new technology a try.

What Defines the Digital Workplace?

When we talk to people about how technology is changing the way they work, we hear lots of excitement about new digital tools that can improve collaboration and help companies connect in a more intuitive way with their customers. However, there’s still a bit of lingering confusion about what the term “digital workplace” actually means.

High-Value Collaboration Centers Deliver ROI for the Entire C-Suite

When you invite colleagues, customers, or prospects into your briefing room, do you have trouble keeping them engaged? Before I came to Prysm, I led a high-performing corporate creative team that worked tirelessly to create content for the business. But when it came time to present our progress, I had no choice other than to distill all that high impact work onto PowerPoint slides that could be shown through a standard projector. Videos and websites became screen shots. eBooks became thumbnails. Digital experiences became static images. You get the idea: What was incredible content “in the wild” turned dull and one-dimensional in the briefing room. The lack of presentation options created similar challenges for my colleagues in sales, as well.

Digitize Your Journey Mapping Processes

Earlier this week I had the opportunity to attend Forrester's journey mapping workshop in their San Francisco office. It was a great mix of content and group exercises to give everyone hands on experience mapping the journey of a customer. We had a pretty impressive journey map by the end of the afternoon!

How to Maximize the Productivity of a Multi-generational Workforce

Today’s workforce includes a variety of generational factions, from Baby Boomers, Gen Xers (like me!) and Millennials, all the way to those from the most recent cohort, dubbed “Gen Z.” On top of that, this particular 50+-year span encompasses a time characterized by unprecedented change in the workplace. Put it all together and it’s easy to see the enormous challenge CIOs now face: They must find solutions that satisfy not only different age groups, but also vastly different skill sets, experiences and preferences.

Three Ways to Improve Employee Productivity

 

It’s the beginning of a new year, and like many of you, I find this is a great time to jump-start my resolve to accomplish more and better — whether that means de-cluttering my desk, better managing my inbox or taking a hike to re-focus.

The Often-Overlooked Way to Cultivate Organizational Intelligence

Solving problems in a competitive market is critical to your company’s ability to innovate. However, to preserve momentum and nurture agility, it’s also vital to understand and preserve the record of how you are solving problems.

Optimizing Outcomes: Don't Overlook Your Collaborative Workflow

The word "collaboration" can conjure contrasting associations, depending on who you are and on your life experiences. Some of us may think of collaboration as a positive thing — a process in which we work with others (hopefully harmoniously) and, by virtue of the teamwork, create results that are better than we could have achieved on our own. Others may bristle at the word, because it brings up memories of forced committees and coalitions, often ending with results that are inferior to those we might have achieved on our own.

While I've experienced both, my feeling is that the more refined the processes and technologies involved, the better the chance that the outcomes will be positive. The bad news is that the above are often lacking.

Force Multiplier: Digital Dexterity Equals Better Business Results

Prysm is laser-focused on helping companies develop digital-transformation initiatives, because we understand that leaders in the digital space are also revenue leaders. Case in point: a McKinsey & Company study1 found that companies that wholeheartedly embrace digital technology — strategically, not just tactically   pull in, on average, five times more revenue than digital laggards. No small potatoes.

The New Meeting: It's a Verb, Not a Noun

Research* shows that today's employees can spend up to 80% of their workdays collaborating. As a result, meetings — our primary method of working together  — have become mere way points in an ongoing collaborative process. This is a major shift from the way we used to think about meetings, which we regarded as events with a beginning and an end.

Is Your Company Losing Money on Its Remote Employees?

Research* shows that approximately 65% of enterprise meetings now include remote participants. The reasons are obvious, including endeavoring to leverage a diverse global workforce, saving money on office overhead, and — in some cases  taking advantage of less expensive local labor.

It is designed to create replicable models that can catalyze the creation of similar Smart Cities throughout various regions of the country.

Co-Browsing: Taking Collaboration to a Whole New Level

When you think of the word "collaboration," you probably think of meetings (online or offline), messaging, screen sharing, file sharing, and maybe even video conferencing. These activities have become not only standard in most business environments, but also a critical part of getting work done.

Digital Transformation: Your Key to Market Success

Outperforming your competition in a rapidly changing business climate requires a trifecta of humility, adaptability, and agility.

Humility helps you realize that perfection is a moving target and that success requires continuous evaluation and adjustment. (Or, in the immortal words of the band Kansas, "If I claim to be a wise man, it surely means that I don't know.") This honest assessment clears the path for the next two key performance indicators.
